I found the best translation I think.

This was about the influx of Greek workers into Germany.

I was wrong! The English version is a gutted version. The song was about those strange Greeks with brown eyes and black hair with strange southern music and their "blood of the earth wine" that immigrated to blue eyed, blonde/brown haired Germany.

"Da saßen Männer mit braunen Augen und mit schwarzem Haar,
und aus der Jukebox erklang Musik, die fremd und südlich war.
Als man mich sah, stand einer auf und lud mich ein.
Griechischer Wein ist so wie das Blut der Erde."

is left out!

TEXT:


Es war schon dunkel, als ich durch Vorstadtstraßen heimwärts ging.
Da war ein Wirtshaus, aus dem das Licht noch auf den Gehsteig schien.
Ich hatte Zeit und mir war kalt, drum trat ich ein.

Da saßen Männer mit braunen Augen und mit schwarzem Haar,
und aus der Jukebox erklang Musik, die fremd und südlich war.
Als man mich sah, stand einer auf und lud mich ein.

Griechischer Wein ist so wie das Blut der Erde.
Komm', schenk dir ein
und wenn ich dann traurig werde,
liegt es daran, dass ich immer träume von daheim;
Du musst verzeih'n.

Griechischer Wein, und die altvertrauten Lieder.
Schenk' noch mal ein!
Denn ich fühl' die Sehnsucht wieder;
in dieser Stadt werd' ich immer nur ein Fremder sein,
und allein.

Und dann erzählten sie mir von grünen Hügeln, Meer und Wind,
von alten Häusern und jungen Frauen, die alleine sind,
und von dem Kind, das seinen Vater noch nie sah.
Sie sagten sich immer wieder: Irgendwann kommt er zurück.
Und das Ersparte genügt zu Hause für ein kleines Glück.
Und bald denkt keiner mehr daran, wie es hier war.

Griechischer Wein ist so wie das Blut der Erde.
Komm', schenk dir ein
und wenn ich dann traurig werde,
liegt es daran, dass ich immer träume von daheim;
Du musst verzeih'n.

Griechischer Wein, und die altvertrauten Lieder.
Schenk' noch mal ein!
Denn ich fühl' die Sehnsucht wieder:
in dieser Stadt werd' ich immer nur ein Fremder sein,
und allein.

another translation of

TEXT : Griechischer Wein


It was already dark when I went through suburban streets homeward.
There was an inn , from which the light was still shining on the sidewalk .
I had time and I was cold , so I went in.

There sat men with brown eyes and black hair ,
and from the jukebox heard music that was strange and south .
When they saw me , one stood up and invited me .

Greek wine is like the blood of the earth .
Come on , you a gift
and when I am sad then ,
is it because that I always dream of home ;
You must verzeih'n .

Greek wine , and the old familiar songs .
Schenk ' again one !
Because I feel ' the longing again ;
in this city I shall always be only a stranger ,
and alone .

And then they told me about green hills , sea and wind ,
of old houses and young women who are alone ,
and of the child who never saw his father .
They said again and again : Eventually he comes back .
And the savings is enough to home for a small fortune .
And soon no one thinks more about how it was here .

Greek wine is like the blood of the earth .
Come on , you a gift
and when I am sad then ,
is it because that I always dream of home ;
You must verzeih'n .

Greek wine , and the old familiar songs .
Schenk ' again one !
Because I feel ' the longing again :
in this city I shall always be only a stranger ,
and alone .

The complete video of Helene Fischer - Das Sommer-Open-Air 2013 komplett HQ (full concert) - Waldbühne Berlin - mdr is here.

This is is a 2 hour video.

There are so many great songs in this video that it is futile to cherry pick but 1:26:00 and 1:45:30 are great.

This is better at 720p
